We saw one of your quick testimonies about some small screws so my husband took off the trim around the GPS and accidently found a reset button which he pushed. It came on and worked all day

When trying to put in an address the Garmin asks me for a country and then does not accept it after typing in the first letter. The other functions appear to be ok.


Hello

you need to update your map

Purchase your map updates (if necessary). You can purchase map updates for your Garmin Nuvi from the Garmin website. There are two basic options: a lifetime purchase or a one-time upgrade. The lifetime purchase gives you access to any new updates for the life of your device, while the one-time upgrade will provide you with the latest current maps, but you'll need to purchase again if you want to upgrade again later.

Make sure to log in with your myGarmin account before purchasing the map upgrade.

Connect your Garmin Nuvi to your computer via USB cable.

Open the "myGarmin" website and sign in with your Garmin account. Make sure to sign in with the account that you've purchased the map updates on.

Click the "myMaps" tab on the myGamrin dashboard. This will load a list of all of your purchased map upgrades.

Click the drop-down menu in the "Recent Map Purchases" section. Select your Garmin Nuvi from the list of devices.

Install the Garmin Communicator Plugin when prompted. This is required in order for the Garmin website to transfer the map files to your Gamrin software on your computer.

Download and install Garmin Express. This is the program that allows your computer to interact with your Garmin Nuvi.

Register your device in Garmin Express. If you haven't already registered your device, you'll be prompted to when you start Garmin Express. You'll need to register in order to update the maps.

Click the "Updates" tab in Garmin Express. This will show all of the available updates for your Nuvi, including the new map update you just purchased.

Click the "Show Details" option next to your Map Update. Click the "Install" button that appears. You will need to accept the agreement before the update installs.

Wait for the maps to download and install. Once you agree to the terms, the map update will begin downloading to Garmin Express, and will then be transferred to your Nuvi. This will likely take several minutes to complete.

unplug the Nuvi when the update is complete. The Nuvi will reboot and begin installing the updated software on the device. This may take another couple of minutes.

You can download garmin express here

Hi


Global Positioning Devices, or GPS, are tracked by satellites to locate their position on Earth in real time. Because they track their own location, they can help you drive, boat, fly or even walk to a particular destination, while giving you information such as your speed, elevation, and arrival time as well. Smart phones have GPS technology built in that is able to update maps automatically, but traditional GPS's have maps loaded onto them that you must manually update occasionally via the internet. Different companies have different ways to do this, but most include straightforward directions on the company's website.
Go to your GPS Company's website, and locate the "Maps" section. It will usually be found under "Support" or "Updates" if there is not an obvious "Maps" tab on the homepage. Plug your GPS into your computer with a compatible USB cord.

Follow the steps to installing the USB driver or plug-in from the website. Click the "Download" link, and read and agree to their terms if asked. Then press "Save file" if asked.

Go into the "Maps" section of the company's website again, and go to the "Update maps" section. Your GPS should be detected by the driver or plug-in, and this will let you know if there are available updates to install. There may be updated maps available for free, but you may have to purchase them. Purchase and then press "Download." Follow the prompts for accepting the terms of agreement, saving the file, and updating your GPS device.

Restart your GPS by unplugging it from the computer and waiting for it to update the new maps. Use as normal.

No maps found tomtom


So it told you no map was found when you enter an address? You can check with some other ways than entering the address such as name of building. If there is a problem loading the map, you will need to download a new map from their web site and update your map. If there is a problem connecting with the satellite you can try to start it a couple more times and see whether you get a better connetion with a new request.

I want to update my GPS


You need to navigate to the Horizon Navigation Online Shop (see Resources for the appropriate download page). Click on the Jensen manufacturer link located on the left menu pane. Choose your particular Jensen GPS model from the menu selection.

#

Choose the coverage area you wish to update your GPS unit with and choose to download the map updating software or have the software sent to you through the mail in DVD form. Fill out the order form information including your payment method (Visa, MasterCard or American Express are the only payment methods accepted). When you receive the updated software by either download or mail, install the software on your computer.

Follow the instruction prompts provided by the Navmate utility program with regard to updating your particular Jensen GPS unit's map software.

Hope helps.

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

Won't accept address information from user


Check in Settings -> Map -> Map Info to see which map(s) currently are installed, perhaps only a small part of the region got installed. When updating map material the unit will erase all old map material from the unit, so if you had a larger area than the one you updated to, then only the newer smaller area would be installed, and thus searchable.
If you have MapSource on your PC and the new map update installed there too, you can try to search for the same address there and see if you're able to find the address then.

Tomtom 100yds off


I have seen this when entering addresses with a letter in them such as 3N124. The address does not enter correctly you will get the wrong address and location. I am trying to find
out if the tomtom supports this address. So far I have been told, NO, by Tomtom support person, but have a hard time believing this since a Magellian accepts this and works. However I have seen a Magellian get my location wrong. I believe the map needs updating. Check the location by view route and zoom in on the location, does the address equal the location that is off if it does it is most likely the map is the problem. If the location equals the address entered maybe the sound is off, stop before entering your home and check the location vs your location on the map. Check you map year, also have someone else check with their gps, might help.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.

Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS problem with map update v6


If you get that address I would love to have it too. I am having a problem with a GPS that I just spend 135.00 to have fixed and now the same problem is occurring. I called, twice today after almost and hour on hold the second time, I went through two people and then was told that the customer service area was too full and I need to hang up and call again tomorrow. I could only understand about half of what he was saying, (heavy india accent) and he was just asking me questions to waste time. He had no solution, and was totally useless.
